House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has been targeted by Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), who issued a call for Congress to approve an official motion to remove her from the position in an op-ed published by Fox News Monday morning.
“Isn’t it past time for Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to leave her office as Speaker of the House?” Biggs asked. “I call upon our leaders in Congress to put forward the Motion to Vacate the Chair that has been prepared and merely needs to be brought to the floor.”
Biggs cited Pelosi’s escalating rhetoric labeling GOP members of Congress as “domestic criminals” as proof that she is no longer fit to lead the House.
“The left hates President Trump and the Americans who voted for him,” Biggs continued. “In and of itself, it is a most despicable statement designed to divide the nation, but it shows a disregard for the institution itself.”
Biggs attacked Pelosi’s decision to allow the impeachment of Trump “based solely on animus toward the president, and not on any allegation of the commission of a ‘high crime or misdemeanor,'” and then doubling down after being proven wrong, “dragging” the nation through an “unnecessary” impeachment hearing.
Lastly, Biggs blasted Pelosi’s “elitist escapade” at the San Francisco hair salon last week that she attempted to blame on salon owner Erica Kious.
The whole Hair-dye-gate drama is born of a sense of entitlement and privilege. It is believing that her wants trump other people’s rights.
Frankly, it is a narcissistic, authoritarian view.
That Pelosi is willing to crush the business of a single, working mom, by blaming her for her own bad judgment, calls to mind Soviet leaders who made sure they had all of their wants met—plenty to eat, dachas on the lakes — while the rest of society went wanting.
The Speaker is willing to show her power against the powerless, who have been shut down by command of the local tyrants for months.
